the burial looks pretty definitive - photo of the plot. but contacting the person on ancestry would be the best bet, I think.

It's the burial of Ellen Tobin at Ford Cemetery, 9 March 1929
Age 66, residence 107 Rice Lane (which I think was the workhouse or infirmary address)

I've previously suggested to Tobina that her three missing Thorngreens may have used the name Tobin from some date after 1911. Tobina appears to have rejected this idea, since she keeps posting the same question.

This is what Tobina said about the Ellen Tobin deaths

I have got the 3 death certificates for the Ellen Tobins in Ford Cemetery. In fact I took the photo posted. I do keep posting in case anyone can suggest any other ways of finding these Thorngreens. I’ve also explored the idea of them reverting to Tobin. I guess this is the end of the road.

Which is why I didn't get excited about the Ellen Tobin burial record (remembering what you said)

However for the two others, William John and Joseph, we do have records for Tobins with the same day and month of birth (Navy, 1939 Register)
Joseph Thorngreen, d.o.b. 9 Oct 1897 given on baptism in Liverpool
Joseph Tobin, d.o.b 9 Oct 1898 in Liverpool in 1939
